What a room, so much fun!
A mix of physical puzzles and more traditional escape room puzzles  - some we have never seen before. Fantastic signposting throughout and no logic leaps needed. Great use of space.
I can guarantee you will be smiling from start to finish. So much so I almost forgot how great the room was as I was focused on how fun it was.

Such a fun room. The sort that leaves you smiling for the rest of the day.
A wide variety of puzzles that don't follow too linear a pattern. You can split up and tackle different challenges but communication is key. Theming is immersive.

Wow, what a game, definitely in my top 3 games played so far.
The theme is not an obvious one for a great set but you were instantly immersed into the past without it being tacky.
Puzzles were everywhere as you walked through the door allowing everyone to split up but also great opportunity for team work.
For those that make it to the end you are in for a huge treat #nospoilers

I tried so hard to love this game, it's well reviewed so I am sure we're the problem somewhere here but as a team that have only done around 20 escape rooms, this one just didn't gel with us.

The good things
- puzzles were logical and varied
- the theming was good.
- friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere

The things we struggled with
- Have to leave the room and walk downstairs to the second part, takes away that magical moment where the set opens and you discover a new room you weren't expecting.
- The hosting style never gelled with us and was never discussed beforehand. We felt like we wasted time as the briefing wasn't clear to us and we're allowed to go down wrong paths when a simply steer would have allowed us to enjoy more of the game.
- the end game seemed pointless. I love the idea (and have seen it before) of 'bonus tasks' after the main objective is done, it's great as you get to enjoy the full hour but there is normally a scoring element to it, this felt like a way to fill the time and the fact the loot wasn't tallied for a score at the end felt like an anti climax.

Maybe we had an off day, I would definitely give the company a try again when next in Newcastle. While not a bad game it didn't quite work for us this time.

Wow what a room

Great use of tech. A stunning room that is fun from start to finish. Great mix of puzzles and the room co tinges to throw new surprises at every stop of the journey

Beautiful set, the odd jump scare and creepy setting to keep you on edge.

A fun place to visit

A major letdown, tired room with illogical puzzles and poor hosting

Beautiful sets and fantastic theatrical sets with a stunning finish.

Let down by a one or two poor puzzles.

Still an overall positive experience and will definitely be back for more

poor hosting

Fun in parts but badly hosted. Lots of similar locks and trying the same lock in sever code and darkness seems to be how they make it difficult

An OK game, very tired and badly maintained.

Fun in parts with some clever puzzles

One of the best Escape Hunt games

An opportunity to be a great game let down by poor maintenance and overuse

We loved the puzzles from start to finish, every type of puzzle you can imagine was here - including a great puzzle that needs at least 2 people, this is our favourite puzzle to date.

Less than 3 days after doing Santa Paws we were back for more, we just can't stay away from Beverley Breakout.

A unique take on a room and a must for puzzle lovers. The side quests and bonus puzzles were a great change to the normal room and something we thoroughly enjoyed.

Wow, what a room. Great fun and smiling from start to finish. Some truly unique puzzles that I haven't seen before or since

Fran as always, was an excellent host. My 7 year old still talks about the fact she told us over the clue system to listen to him as he was right 😀

We did the 60 minute version.

A run room with clever puzzles. Theming isn't as extravagant as some but what you get are great puzzles with a fantastic host.

The added element of Jewel hunting and almost a side quest to the main game is a great feature. Wish we did the 100 minute version.

No better way to spend a Christmas Eve

Beautifully flowing room, great variety of puzzles throughout and absolutely no logic leaps. 

As always wonderfully hosted and a pleasure to play. Would highly recommend.

A journey from bedroom to chocolate factory. Visually beautiful, a great variety of puzzles and family friendly. 

We went with our 6 year old who loved it and was a real help throughout.

Another classic from Enigma, we will be back soon to do Impact

Not sure I have ever been in a room with so many puzzles. Observation skills are key.

To be honest there was too much to do as a team of 2 but the host was brilliant and dragged us through to the end. Throwing the hints at us that were the perfect level to get us through but not ruin the aha moments.

Would loved to have spent more time in there, would have happily paid a bit more for an extra 15 (or maybe even 30) minutes

A really tough room for 2 people. Full of well thought out puzzles, hard puzzles but no logic leaps required and some great lighbulb moments to be had.

The room more to it that meets the eyes.

The host is great and this is clearly a labour of love

The first room we took our then 6 year old to and the first room we did away from the big corporate chains.

To say we were blown away and hooked is an understatement.

Such a beautiful room with some great puzzles that we still haven't seen again since. I can't see how anyone could leave this room and not have fun, it is the yard stick we use to compare all future games.

The best game of a very good bunch at Beverley Breakout.

The usually brilliant puzzles you expect, you can tell the owner is an enthusiast, but with stunning visuals beyond the other rooms.

Fran is the nicest host you will come across in Yorkshire, we can't wait till she releases more games to be back soon.

Beautiful rooms full of great puzzles, just what you have become to expect from enigma. Well anticipated and didn't dissapoint. 

We played with out seven year old, there was one small bit he wasn't keen on but he absolutely loved the rest.

All I can say is wow, what a game. Definitely the best game we have ever played.

A beautiful, immersive and high tech room.

Relies on cooperation between teammates almost no puzzle can be done by one person. Love the fact that teams of 2 get an extra 15 minutes as well.

Hosts were lovely and very accommodating when we turned up 1.5 hours late due to a flat tire on the M62
